Based on differential flatness approach, the quadcopter dynamical constraints are checked instantaneously by computing the induced aerodynamical roll and pitch, heading moments, and lift force, respectively.
By comparing the aerodynamical coefficients, the blockage ratio of 0.9% is chosen, because, under this ratio, the blockage effect to the aerodynamical coefficients reduced to the minimum while ensuring a relatively smaller dimensions of the computation domain at the same time.
As illustrated in [27], the aerodynamical stability of the dynamic system is mainly determined by the sign of the net damping coefficient.
This procedure is extended to involve the complete aerodynamical and structural behavior of blades with the nonuniform and twisted configuration [6].
This paper is organized as follows: firstly, the Mars entry dynamic model and measurement model based on the IMU and three orbiters are introduced; secondly, the communications brownout and blackout phenomena are predicted by an aerodynamical tool during Mars atmospheric entry; thirdly, the information filter with intermittent measurements is derived; and lastly, the results of the navigation simulation are discussed.
Value of the coefficient k for an endlessly long link can be determined with help of aerodynamical experiment.
Boundary-layer flows over flat surfaces are fundamental for the understanding of aerodynamical properties of the flow such as wall friction and the dynamical drag.
For bugs, it is aerodynamical forces that provide this stability.
This wing had leading-edge slats which extended and retracted automatically in response to aerodynamical forces, permitting low speeds for landing and unprecedented high speeds for flight.
